the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous commitment, and i believe that the u.s. navy is capable of maintaining that unambiguous military strength. as we sit here this morning aboard the uss macon island, in san fra

in the south china sea or its sovereignty interests in the east china sea with japan. interestingly enough, you can also apply new domains, cyberspace missions. so if you look at the how the pla may be taking on some of these historic missions, you can see them in some of the things the pla's been doing over the last few years. the third historic mission has to do with providing powerful strategic support for national development. that might mean protecting the national interests far and abroad from china itself, so being able to protect chinese citizens in countries like africa, so the counterpiracy mission that we saw at the end of 2008 could be a reflection of that mission. and then finally, the last historic mission is to play an important role in safeguarding world peace. sounds like a lot of fluff, but the reality is what's been going on over the last decade, actually longer, being involved in military diplomacy, sending out a hospital ship to do medical diplomacy. so although i'm reluctant to always take at face value things that the chinese commune party puts out -- communist party puts

of that is chinese behavior in the last few years in the south china sea. where they kept pushing and pulling, and some extent they still are. but when the administration and i give hillary clinton a heck of a lot of credit for this, when she basically got up at the conference and made it clear that this is going a little bit too far, they backed off. again, in 1996 when carriers were sent to the taiwan strait, they backed off. the chinese will push if they think they can push. they're not the only country in the world that operates that way. but if we, you know, we take that kind of strong action, i honestly would be shocked, and they don't mean it in the casablanca sense of shocked, shocked. i mean literally shocked come if the chinese were stupid enough to try to make a military issue out of it. >> so if i could just add. i think, you know, this administration, has pursued trade actions against china, you know, twice as many as its predecessor. and there's no question that this president has been tough when he's needed to be tough with china on pushing them on unfair practices. we've also
